INDIANAPOLIS>> A person with measles may have exposed visitors at Indianapolis’ Super Bowl Village to the disease, and as many as 3 other central Indiana residents might have it, too.

Indiana health officials said Wednesday that two cases are confirmed and two others are suspected. One of the two persons with a confirmed case was among more than 200,000 people who visited the Super Bowl Village on Friday.

Measles has cold-like symptoms paired with a high fever and a rash. It’s rare in the U.S. because most people are immunized against it.

Indiana Health Commissioner Greg Larkin said symptoms take seven to 10 days to appear after exposure to the virus, which is spread through the air. Health officials are asking people to contact their doctors if they develop symptoms.
